electrifying the fedex faithful and i think the whole city in whole, we have the talk about the defense a little bit too. they really stepped up especially in the first half when the offense was sputtering and lorenzo pander, there he is -- alexander, there he is, the one man gang. that's the twitter handle because he does it all. we always think of him as a demon on special teams, which he is, every time you see somebody tackle. you see number 97 flying in the picture, took 27 snaps at linebacker, had a sack and a half. four tackles and of course got the big fumble that set up the touchdown on the next play. he got a game ball. he's a captain. >> i understand my role on the team is to be a special teams demon and to be a captain and you know fill in on defense when need be and just take advantage of the opportunities. it made me a different player, quicker and more dynamic and i think the coach utilized the history today and pass rushing. you know it was a great feeling to go out there and finally contribute on a defense to the win. >> it's what he does. like i always said if you have 52

the city attorney's office, i've had a chance to review the letter and i would just like to make a few points about that. the first is that the letter sort of co-mingles what are common terms that are used both in the environmental analysis and ceqa process as well as in section 295, this is something the commissions grapple with. every time a shadow decision comes before it, but the terms of what's considered significant and insignificant under ceqa or adverse impacts under ceqa are different decisions, different analysis, different factors come into play. when those sixes are decisions are made in the process of 295 analysis prop k, so i wanted to point that out. i think the staff memo that you received does touch on this briefly as well. i did also want to point out that commissioner sugaya raised another city attorney opinion, i just wanted to point out that addressed sort of a different question than the issue that is are before you today, so i don't think that that has bear -- bearing on today's decision, but i wanted to point out something about the 1989 memo that are raised in

down payment assistance loans for people who are buying homes for the first time. so there is also a large need we're finding. we're going to have one of the largest aging populations in the state. i think we'll be -- yeah, i think the 6th largest city in state and aging population. we have needs and the disabled community has housing needs as well that aren't being met currently. so we think it's the best place to start forming policy is by informing ourselves about what we are doing in the city. the and the only way to do that is to look at these projects of five units or more and finding out, you know, who we're building the housing for? if we don't how can we assess polices and look awhere the gaps are so we can make sure to live in a city that is economically diverse and that where people, students, sf seniors, and families and others can still afford to stay here. so it's a mixture of things, of course. you know, production of housing, even market-rate housing lends to the production of a lower/middle-income housing. so it all kinds of feeds off of each other. again, he think i
